600W is more than enough for GTS 250.Just make sure your motherboard supports it too.

thank you for replay
one more thing that you said that gts 450 is better. Does cooler master 600w and my motherboard asus p5g41t-M lx will support it and my cpu e5700 will supply enough data to that vedio card. If it does not support what should i do

Your PSU/MB can handle GTS 450 as well.
E5700 though may cause bottlenecks(especially if you play at low resolution)

Yes a GTS 450 can handle all games fine on that res.
Getting Q6600/4GB RAM will also help you significantly.

GTS 450 is slightly faster than GTS 250,so if the price difference isn't much,go with GTS 450
(And those benchmarks you saw were wrong because even at stock speeds GTS 450 is faster)

As long as your case has enough room for it(Almost all mid/full tower cases have), you can use it.

On 1024x768 yes,(aside from some demanding titles like Metro 2033) but on 1280x1024,you may need to lower the settings on some games.

GTS 250 and GT 240 both share the same drivers.
